Social Life in Ireland

Enjoy ACET's social life and make friends from all over the world, from other cultures and backgrounds.

Cork is a welcoming city to all its visitors. There is an ongoing programme of entertainment including the Jazz festival, the Choral festival, the Film festival and many weekend festivals.

Dancing You have the opportunity to experience and familiarise yourself with Irish culture while in Cork.

From traditional Irish pubs to modern European nightclubs, from cosy theatres to multiplex cinemas, you can improve your English while enjoying a varied social life.

Cork is an ideal location for sports enthusiasts whether you are interested in football, golf, cycling, tennis, sailing, fishing, windsurfing, canoeing or other sports.

ACET organises many social and cultural activities. You might want to learn Irish dancing and practise your new skills at a traditional Irish dance known as a "céili". You can join our experienced guides on excursions to the beautiful south and west, visit Blarney Castle where, according to the legend, the magic stone gives you the gift of eloquence or become a qualified Irish whiskey taster at Jameson distillery.

From barbeques to talks on Irish history and weekends in Dublin, there is a choice of stimulating activities available every day!
